I learned that there’re very few differences between a male brain and a female brain. The only difference really is a part for menstruation and the startle reflex.
If you creep up behind a girl and then shout “BOO!” and grab her or something, she’ll obviously get startled.
Guys are different. We’ll get startled too, but only if we don’t see it coming. Someone can be really quiet, but if you hear their breath, or a rush of air, or anything right before they scare you, you won’t get scared.
That’s ‘cause guys have this thing that bypasses the startle reflex if they see it coming, even if it’s just half a second before it happens.
Girls do not have this thing. If they see it coming, they will still get startled (which is the point of horror movies. You know it’s coming, but you still jump.)
Now get this, there’re some gay guys who don’t have this startle bypass. They react like women. They can see it coming, but they’ll be startled anyway because it’s a reflex that they can’t control. Not all gay guys have it, but it’s been discovered that some do which shows a physiological relationship we share with women.
And that’s what i learned in school today.
